    Is it 8v or 16v?

    If 16v it can become an amazing engine.

    If 8v I wouldn't bother, just make it look nice.

    All SXi's are 16v (arnt they????)

    As for performance mods, the sky's the limit. This is the engine that OPC are developing for a turbo Corsa, and a number of other companies can do the same already, (Courteneys being one)

    If you are after moderate gains , the usual route of cat back exhaust and induction yeilds a few more ponies out. Beyond that you are looking at ECU remapping.
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    ??wasn't sure

    Get the inlet manifold from places like Regal, courtney, it will then bcome a flyer, do air/zorst as well.

    You can do shed loads more but this is all u really need.

    EDIT - Phone SBD they are god with this engine:
